Cucumber Basil Lemongrass Cooler

Serves 2 Prep Time 5 minutes   Rated:

One of the things that first attracted me to the Thermomix was the ability to make just about anything from scratch, in a very short space of time, including the easiest of fresh lemonades. This is one of my faves. The combination of flavours screams hot summer days, and of course you can leave the rum out and get the kids drinking cucumber!! They should all love that.
